Watch: Paying for goods with your heartbeat.
BetaKit sat down with Martin for an extended interview on the thought process and logistics behind the decision, what the past year has meant for Nymi, and what comes next.

As 2015 comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment and wish our partners and supporters a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year.  This is also a great time to reflect upon 2015 and what has been an exciting year for Nymi.

Our CEO John Haggard talks a bit about enterprise security, his decision to join Nymi, and his hobbies outside of work. Read below to learn more about John.

1) Why did you decide to join Nymi? What went into making this decision?

Talent, platform and trust.

This past summer, we wrote a blog post updating you on our strategic priorities for the second half of this year: enhancing the Nymi Band Core Experience, and engaging in new partnerships and pilots. The latter - piloting the Nymi Band in partnering organizations - is an important objective in allowing us to explore, test and learn from various use-cases whereby the Nymi Band, as a continuous authenticator, is of value to the enterprise user. We are excited to announce that new pilots will be launching this fall, with a focus on physical access in the workplace. Additionally, we are happy to announce our involvement in MasterCard’s new tokenized payment program, marking a key milestone in our contactless payment roadmap.
